I see people panicking and I also saw someone else share this tip so I wanted to do so as well.
When you search for a tag now this is what the URL will look like
ALL YOU HAVE TO DO TO GET THE OLD PAGE BACK IS CHANGE
That’s it, one word and you’re back in business! Unless Tumblr takes it away permanently.
I wish they’d adapt that multi-post grid look for the queue and like pages so we can get through them faster but, maybe that will come later.
- Soup.io - well-known alternative to Tumblr. Reblogging, post types, themes, collab blogs, dashboard, artsy, great community already there. Soup can auto-import everything you’ve posted on Tumblr.
- TypePad - Includes reblogging. Dashboard and post types similar to Tumblr.
- Jux - Artful posts, beautiful blogging experience
So there’s another virus going around, and whatever made it is getting clever. It looks like a normal submitted video, but it’s a very bad virus that will hack into your account. I went to the user that sent it to me and there is nothing on their blog- it’s utterly empty.
DO NOT SUBMIT IT, DO NOT CLICK ON IT, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO WATCH IT. DELETE/IGNORE IT.
Gonna reblog this again, dO NOT CLICK THE DAMN VIDEO.
I just had this happen to me with a different video.
If you get this message:
DO NOT REPLY TO IT
I kinda pitied the person because I know what it’s like getting a tumblr and not knowing what the heck’s going on, so I sent them a short reply and some advice, which was a big mistake.
Today I got this message:
Sketchy to say the least.
The link will most likely hack into your account and cause you to send similar messages to other tumblr users at the very least, or it might put a virus on your computer itself.
If you’ll notice, the second message uses my url and attached it to a Comcast email. Meaning, it’ll most likely try and send other people the same messages using your url if you were dumb enough to reply to the first message like I was.
What to do: With any virus that gets around like this, block the user who sent you the message and delete the message. If you already replied to the first one and got the second message, DON’T CLICK THE LINK. Delete the message and change your password as well as block the sender.
If anyone has any other advice or similar experience with this same virus, let me know and / or add it to this post so other tumblr users can be informed.
VERY IMPORTANT, FRIENDS:
a very small change was also added in this update which makes you searchable BY YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS and it is AUTOMATICALLY CHECKED on your blog. UNCHECK, SAVE, AND RUN FAR AWAY WITH YOUR BLOG. plus it’s in super small font, which makes it extra suspicious.
very important for people who don’t want family and others with their email address to find their blog!! very important to protect privacy!! signal boost!!
i know 100% that i had this damn thing un-checked before the update happened, but i just went to check and it’s checked again??? god bless this post because as they say, it’s so fucking small that i wouldn’t have noticed. being able to be tracked by your email should be optional, not enforced without notice. good spot op uvu
Well that explains how my mom found my tumblr with my email when I know I had this unchecked before.
Dick move, Yahoo/Tumblr, dick move.
Made rebloggable by anonymous request.
Links to help you source art:
There is also an extension that allows you to right click on any image and instantly access any and all of these, meaning it literally takes seconds to source a piece.
Reminder that none of the following are proper sources:
- “not mine”
- “credit to whoever drew this”
- “Source Unknown”
(text is from http://kaibas-pants.tumblr.com/post/53602856487/links-to-help-you-source-art-saucenao-iqdb but i thought this may help it spread the information faster, so all this info is from them, just trying to get the word out. THIS EXTENSION FOR CHROME IS AMAZING BTW! I totally recommend it.)
